Vegan Mofo Day 19 - Lunch on the go - Marks and Spencer Salads
I'm interpreting this prompt as lunches I can grab from a well known chain when I don't have time to make my own. It's still pretty difficult to buy a decent sandwich in England from any of the chains and I think your best best at most places is a salad. This is especially true of Marks and Spencer where despite having a massive sandwich range there is none suitable for vegans. However, they do have a great salad range in their 2 for £3 salad pots.
Quite a number of the salad pots are suitable for vegans and even more if you are happy to leave off the dressing (some are vegan but come with dressing pots that contain honey). The selection can vary greatly depending on which branch you go in but the Marks and Spencer Food store at the end of our road carries the full range.
The pots are nice and filling too incorporating ingredients like quinoa, rice, beans and potatoes and I like to put a couple of different ones together. I prefer to make my own packed lunches for work but if I can't for any reason then I'm always happy with these and they are a great option when you're away from home.
